Giants notch fourth straight shutout for 1st time

San Francisco recorded a fourth straight shutout for the first time in Giants history, beating the Cincinnati Reds 5-0 on Thursday and going clear atop the National League West standings for the first time this season.
Madison Bumgarner (10-4) pitched a one-hitter, allowing only a single leading off the sixth inning. He struck out eight in winning his fifth straight decision.
The Giants became the 17th team to have four or more consecutive shutouts since 1918. The Baltimore Orioles did it most recently, with five straight in 1995.
Reds starter Johnny Cueto (9-4) had his four-game winning streak halted.
METS 3, DODGERS 2
At Los Angeles, David Wright hit a solo homer and RBI double as New York sent Los Angeles to its fifth straight loss.
The Dodgers ended their 33-inning scoreless drought in the fourth, but couldn't break through against the Mets' bullpen and dropped from the top of the NL West.
Mets starter Chris Young (2-1) allowed two runs in 6 1-3 innings, striking out six and walking none. Bobby Parnell, getting his first save opportunity since closer Frank Francisco was injured, pitched a perfect ninth inning for his first save of the year.
L.A. starter Chris Capuano (9-3) gave up three runs in seven innings.
DIAMONDBACKS 3, BRAVES 2
At Atlanta, Chris Young hit a tiebreaking homer in the ninth inning to give Arizona the win over Atlanta.
Jason Kubel had hit a two-run double in the sixth to tie the score for the Diamondbacks.
Trevor Bauer, the No. 3 overall draft pick in 2011, did not receive a decision in his major-league debut for Arizona. David Hernandez (1-0) earned the win with a scoreless eighth. J.J. Putz got the last three outs for the save.
Braves closer Craig Kimbrel (0-1) gave up the first homer he's conceded this season, and took the loss.
PIRATES 5, PHILLIES 4
At Philadelphia, A.J. Burnett threw 6 2-3 sharp innings to win his eighth straight start and guide Pittsburgh past Philadelphia.
Burnett (9-2) allowed six hits, striking out seven. It's the first time a Pirates pitcher has won eight in a row since Dock Ellis in 1974.
Casey McGehee hit a three-run homer for Pittsburgh, who are 40-35 but haven't finished a season with more wins than losses since 1992.
Joel Hanrahan tossed a scoreless ninth for his 20th save.
Phillies starter Kyle Kendrick (2-8) gave up five runs before he'd recorded two outs.
ROCKIES 11, NATIONALS 10, 11 INNINGS
At Denver, Marco Scutaro's RBI single in the 11th inning lifted Colorado over Washington after it squandered an early seven-run lead.
Jonathan Herrera doubled with one out off Craig Stammen (3-1). After pinch-hitter Jason Giambi walked, Dexter Fowler hit a fly ball to deep center that was caught by Bryce Harper. Herrera tagged up and took third on the play with pinch-runner Christian Friedrich advancing to second.
Scutaro, who was 13 for 68 with runners in scoring position, then completed a seven-pitch at-bat with a single to right-center.
Harper's homer in the ninth off Colorado closer Rafael Betancourt tied the score and sent the game into extra innings.
PADRES 7, ASTROS 3
At Houston, Alexi Amarista launched a grand slam for his first major league homer, capping a six-run rally in the ninth inning that lifted San Diego over Houston.
With two outs and the score 3-3, Amarista homered off Brett Myers (0-3).
San Diego's Andrew Cashner held Houston hitless for six innings in only his third big league start.
